all are at the heart of the this place the idea we call san francisco. you know, many of us came here from smoip else or their parents did. and whether it was guadalajara or a rural county in texas what brought us here was that hope where in san francisco as most places offered a better life. it was judged by a play we create not by a language we grew up with. we're a city that rewards the inno matter and the risktaker. fred and harvey ye very and willie brown and nancycy pelosi. we've known our share of adversity, earthquake and the problems with aids. we're not afraid to fail or doing what we know is right. and most importantly we know that none of us succeed alone whether it's in reconcile or business or life. we know as michelle obama said so well, this past summer when you walk through that door of opportunity you don't slam it shut you help someone else walk through that door behind you. my fellow san franciscans i know there's no limit to the opportunities in this city in we keep the door open. if we commit ourselves and put politics behind us we can help future generations and
to the first meeting. with the presidential election behind us it is fair to see that we will see more of a focus on transportation. i think it is also fair to say that there continues to be perhaps little appetite for tackling some of the core issues in terms of the insolvency of the federal highway trust fund and transportation funding nationally and of course that impact what happens at the local level. we certainly will continue to be diligent in watching what happens in washington dc. i know that a number of us this morning had a reception with leader pelosi who has been very helpful in the past and securing funding for transportation here in the city and county of san francisco. i also want to talk about the trend happening locally in terms of revenue measures such as the sales tax and vehicle registration fee that are administered by the authority. one of the things that is important as we move forward is to always look for the most cost-effective ways of doing the work. one of the things that i hope you continue to do is to focus on enhancing coordination among the various cit

us really going through everything and ensuring that we dotted every i and crossed every t and i know it was a lot of work for their staff. largely, the proposal would amend the municipal election code to incorporate the state law allowing the nomination procedures for city college and board of education for example to continue to be governed by state law but also changing some of the dates for the board of supervisors and for other -- our may yoirl race as well sx, also we made some other nominations according to the advice of elections, around the circulation of badges and filing fees, i would also like to ask the rules committee to consider making some amendments today, further clean-up of this legislation, one is to section 205 and this would push back the nomination deadline for all candidates to match those of the mayor and the board of supervisors so this would be by the 146 day before the municipal election, it also specifies the period by which the candidates and the mayor of supervisor may circulate their nomination papers. section 220 and 260 follow along the lines of this
many candidates are under suspicion for drug use so i thought i would bring that out to san francisco. second suggestion is that in an election where there is a residency required, ie, board of supervisors, if there is a written question about whether a candidate lives in a district, then it's public information, how the investigation goes and then the candidate that's being questioned is required by the election code to put in writing that he does live in the district. now, this was in regards to a situation that was done entirely in writing in 2008 and to this day, the particular person i'm talking about still refuses to put in writing whether he lived in the district or he was running to be supervisor, and the only thing i have to say, if you can't put it in writing, that brings up a legitimate question. thank you. >> okay. any other public comment? seeing none, public comment is closed. colleagues, any thoughts? is there a motion to forward this item to the full board? >> [inaudible]. >> could we first take a motion to make the amendments that i had? >> thank you. is there a motio
as well. so, poor people's radio as i used to call it, kpoo when i was a broadcaster in '84, learning quite a bit from j.j. parsons, the general manager, but also joe rudolph, i think donald, one of the broadcasters calls kpoo the house of [speaker not understood]. that is fair to many others that have built the station over 42-year history or longer history. i wanted to say that kpoo has always been my family and my mentors, learning about black studies leading to the third world strike at san francisco state and leaders like arnold and terry collins' leadership of kpoo building broader community and unity among other low-income communities as well to give a stronger voice so kpoo is seen by some as black radio station or african-american radio station. i've always seen it as united people's radio station that really broadcasts the best of our arts and culture and histories of struggle in our neighborhoods as well. i wanted to also say that harrison [speaker not understood] and many of the broadcasters from larry chiu and others that i have trained with over the years in the '80s and
